As you get older, you will probably notice changes “down there”, especially, but not only if you’ve had children. The changes are both cosmetic and functional. There is a loss of volume and aging of the skin/tissues so the internal and external vaginal skin becomes more loose and saggy. The associated symptoms include vaginal dryness, a decrease in sexual pleasure, and stress incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine). It’s inevitable to a certain degree, but treatment can help.
General aging leads to skin thinning, hormonal changes, and childbirth which stretches out the skin and the whole area. In essence, every woman (with or without children) will experience these changes at some point, especially in her 40’s, 50’s and older.
Vaginal aging affects the internal and external labia and the vaginal canal.
How do we treat vaginal aging?
We prefer to use energy-based treatments to strengthen the tissues and improve the appearance and health of the tissues. The benefits are that only a few treatments lead to long-lasting improvements and you avoid exposure to any systemic hormones. The treatment is comfortable and safe.
ThermiVa is radiofrequency based non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure for women to improve vaginal health, tightness, and function. A warm probe is gently applied and moved around the area to stimulate improvement in the vaginal tissues.
